In high school, I was teased for a number of things. My name, the way I dressed, and for my love of reading and learning. I didn’t have many friends for this reason, but now I’m 21 years old, and living life to the fullest. What changed? I did. I realized after years of always […]

The only advantage of being a husky 8th grader was that I had a place as a defensive lineman on the football team.  I wasn’t always […]

I remember the days of being shoved into lockers, books tossed out of my hands and the boys who would made sure to call me “four eyes” everyday. As I look back almost 9 years ago; I’m so glad I went through an awkward stage(years). My friends were my friends not because I was rich, […]

I was 8 years old in the picture and teased daily because I was overweight. I hated going to school because I knew I’d end up in tears. My mother and father would tell me it was going to be ok. That it was just a faze. I’d grow up and lose the weight. That […]
